New ‘bubble’ to cordon off school construction area

As Wiesbaden middle schoolers, teachers and staff prepare to enter their new school this summer on Hainerberg, U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden and its partners will move on to the next construction project – Hainerberg Elementary School.

A new “bubble” will be built around the elementary construction site beginning at the end of July. The bubble will completely surround the new project with secure fencing and access will be monitored. The bubble will facilitate construction and cut down on construction traffic through the Hainerberg access control point.

As the construction site shifts, Hainerberg visitors and residents should be aware of new traffic routes.
Texas Strasse will dead end at Virginia Strasse.

Virginia Strasse will be blocked from Texas Strasse to California Strasse as a dedicated route for construction vehicles to access the bubble.
Mississippi Strasse will remain blocked.

The new elementary school construction site encompasses the old middle school. The project will include demolition of the middle school building along with barrier construction between the old middle and elementary schools, which are connected.

Construction of Hainerberg Elementary School is expected to be complete in spring 2021.

For the 2018/2019 school year, student drop-off zones will be adjusted to facilitate the new bubble, as well. Look for drop-off areas to be announced in the August Herald Union and on the USAG Wiesbaden Facebook page.
